The truth is, nothing quite matches the tidal ebbs and flows of a full Ashes Test encounter, but with so much cricket to feast on this summer, catching up with the highlights may be your best bet to keep track of it all.


England and Australia lock horns in the fifth Test with The Ashes 2023 series drawing to a close. Australia have retained the Ashes following a washout at Old Trafford but England can claim a draw should they triumph at The Oval.

Offices will be filled with the sound of Test cricket drifting over the radio and the frantic clicking away from live stream coverage when the boss walks past, but extensive highlights mean everyone can track the big moments without sacrificing productivity during the day.

Fans across the nation, who have tasted victory in just one of the last five series' since 2013, will also be desperate to roll in from work to the sights and sounds of English success.

Of course, the nature of Test cricket is that there is a lot of it. However, keeping up to date with all the major moments will be an achievable task in 2023 thanks to highlights shows across subscription and free-to-air TV platforms.

More like this brings you all the details for keeping track of The Ashes highlights across the series.
